Lengthy Seashore Mayor’s mom Robert Garcia stepfather on ventilators after testing constructive for COVID-19 – CBS Los Angeles
LONG BEACH (CBSLA) Moncton Mayor’s mother and stepfather Robert Garcia were both hospitalized and on ventilator after testing positive for COVID-19.
“The COVID-19 health crisis is affecting our country, our city and my family,” Garcia said in a statement to CBSLA. “Both my mom and stepfather recently tested positive and both are now in the hospital and on ventilators.”
Garcia says both are in stable condition. He said his mother, a healthcare worker who has worked in the same clinic for more than 25 years, has been incredibly careful because she understood how serious the virus is.
The mayor said he and his husband, who both tested negative recently, have not interacted directly with their parents in many weeks because of the virus.
As of Sunday, Moncton reported 5,616 cases of COVID-19 and 149 deaths. The city says 97 people are currently being hospitalized for COVID-19.
